How Eating Meat and Climate Change Have Contributed to Viruses Like Zika

Pigs

Zika, a mosquito-borne virus currently spreading across Africa, the Americas, Asia, and the Pacific, has been declared an international public health emergency by the World Health Organization (WHO). The virus is suspected to cause a birth defect known as microcephaly, in which babies are born with small heads, a condition which can cause brain damage, developmental defects, and debilitation. According to WHO, as many as four million people could be infected by the end of the year. The virus has also been linked to neurological syndromes. As these links have been drawn, and the virus continues to spread rapidly, Zika’s risk profile has evolved from “a mild threat” to “one of alarming proportions.”

Zika first emerged in 1947 and since then cases only occurred occasionally in Africa and some Pacific islands. But last May, the Zika virus appeared in Brazil and has been spreading rapidly. Unfortunately, Zika is not the only emerging infectious disease (EID) to have surfaced and developed quickly in recent years. Ebola, SARS, bird flu, swine flu, and several others have been making headlines as they each spread across the human population at unprecedented speeds. The increase in EIDs in recent times has been confirmed by a scientific study which analyzed the occurrence of 335 such diseases in the past 60 years and found that the incidence of EIDs has grown dramatically over this period.

So what is causing this increased incidence of dangerous viral diseases? As it turns out, there is a correlation between the current health crisis and our global meat-heavy diet. Studies are linking the recent surge in viruses to our increased global impact on the environment, mainly the intensification of farming and climate change.

Animal Agriculture’s Giant Role in Climate Change

It’s no longer a well-kept secret that raising animals for meat, dairy, and eggs is responsible for widespread environmental damage.  According to the World watch Institute, animal agriculture produces 51 percent of annual worldwide emissions, with the industry creating over 32 billion tons of carbon dioxide per year.

This large-scale pollution of our atmosphere is causing climate change, and a changing climate and global warming facilitate the spread of infectious diseases. Zika is a vector-borne disease, meaning it is spread through insects, in this case, the Aedes aegypti mosquito. Warming temperatures are not only allowing mosquitoes to thrive — as they fare best in hot and humid conditions — but are also accelerating their larvae’s maturation period and shortening the incubation time of the viruses mosquitoes carry.

The Asian tiger mosquito has also been known to transmit the virus, and climate change has dramatically increased this insect’s range. It now ranges as far north as New York and Chicago in summer. Extreme weather events caused by climate change are also helping spread disease. The WHO states in a release about Zika that “conditions associated with this year’s El Niño weather pattern are expected to increase mosquito populations greatly in many areas.”

Deforestation Due to Meat Industry Creates Mosquito-Breeding Grounds

The need to grow feed in massive quantities for the world’s livestock has caused large-scale deforestation, especially in the Amazon rainforest. The beef industry is responsible for as much as 70 percent of Amazon deforestation. As cleared land collects rainwater better than rainforests, it provides a suitable breeding ground for mosquitoes, allowing more of these infected insects to survive and spread disease. Because of this, deforestation has been linked to an increased incidence of malaria and other vector-borne illnesses such as Zika, whose current strain originated in Brazil.

A WHO statement on the Zika virus reads, “the level of concern is high, as is the level of uncertainty.” No one knows how far Zika will spread and how much damage it will cause. What is certain, however, is the large-scale damage currently caused to our planet and our global health by animal agriculture.

What You Can Do

Clearly, animal agriculture is a tremendously destructive industry and its unscrupulous practices put our global health at risk in more ways than one. As Dr. Akhtar writes about the high incidence of new EIDs and Zika’s rapid spread, “Unless we take a hard look at the choices we make in life, such as eating animals and reproducing at such a high rate, new pathogens will show themselves at an ever-increasing rate.”

As the leading organization at the forefront of the conscious consumerism movement, it is One Green Planet’s view that our food choices have the power to heal our broken food system and pave the way for a truly sustainable future.

By choosing to eat more plant-based foods, you can drastically cut your carbon footprint, save precious water supplies and help ensure that vital crop resources are fed to people, rather than livestock. With the wealth of available plant-based options available, it has never been easier to eat with the planet in mind.

Our everyday food choices have the power to heal our broken food system, help improve global health, and pave the way for a truly sustainable future. Join One Green Planet’s #EatForthePlanet movement.

    Q: Hello, I have the herpes virus that occasionally causes me to get a cold sore about once a year. I eat very healthy i.e. no dairy, fried foods, red meat etc. What do you recommend as a cure for this virus. I don't want to take something that will make the virus continue to stay dormant in my blood stream but something that will completely kill it out of my system so I never have an outbreak again. I'm certain there is a remedy that exists. My belief is that God has created a natural cure for every disease. Can you help, thanks?

    A:

    We have a very potent Anti-Viral Kit & Regimen that can help eradicate herpes from the body (especially if you perform the Full Body Cleanse before or after the Anti-Viral kit) and build the immune system to prevent future outbreaks.

    Also, read our article entitled "Genital Herpes" under "Articles" on our site.

    Q: I am curious about the anti-viral regimen and how exactly it works on viruses. In the product description it states that every other product only "suppresses" the herpes type 1 and 2 virus, therefore having the virus remain hiding in the cells and not providing a cure. If one undergoes the regimen, following the diet etc., will the virus be completely eradicated from one's system? Or again, does this regimen only suppress the virus as well? P.S. IF it does eradicate the virus completely, will it be eliminated after the 20 day period?

    A:

    Herpes can be eradicated after completion of both kits (Full Body Cleanse and Anti Viral Kit) with strict adherence to our dietary regimen. Both cleanses detoxify the blood and the other eliminative channels to help flush viruses, infections, and toxins out of your system.

    Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, our products and cleanses work to heal naturally from the inside-out. This means there are no harmful side effects, and does not mask any symptoms. Holistic healing can eliminate viruses and allow you to live freely and confidently.

    Q: Hi. I am very interested in pursuing your detox (both the full and anti-viral, one after the other as it is recommended) however I am a little bit confused. In the actual product description, it states that all other products available only "manage" viruses such as herpes, meaning that the virus still remains in the body. It states that Dherbs helps to eradicate all viruses. It also states in the Q and A it is guaranteed that one will test negative for herpes after the treatment (if it is followed correctly). However, all the articles on your website talk about changing one's lifestyle etc to help CONTROL the virus and therefore prevent outbreaks and that the anti-viral kit can help in the preventing outbreaks (but again that means the virus will remain in the system). SO....I am wondering what the actual potentials of this product and regimen are. If followed with the raw food diet for 6 weeks (3 weeks on the detox and 3 weeks on the anti-viral) will the herpes virus be completely eradicated from one's system so that medical tests will show negative results OR is this regimen just another way of managing the virus, while having it still remain in the system.

    A:

    The Full Body Cleanse and the Anti-Viral Cleanse can help cleanse and detoxify your entire system to help you heal from Herpes. Every person responds differently to the cleanse, depending on the toxicity of your body.

    Q: Hi, I have been suffering from a dull pain the testicular area for over 2 years now. I have seen 2 urologists that have confirmed that I have enterococcus bacteria in either the prostate of genital area based on semen culture. I have also done testicle ultrasound and CAT scan of the area with good results. One of the urologist said that I have an inflamed prostate (prostitis) there was some varicose veins when ultra sound was done but the urologist continues to give me long term antibiotics. Some my symptoms have been dull pain in the testicular area when I need to have a bowel movement. low energy, moody, memory loss, irritable, confused, brain fog etc. I use to have a health sex drive but now my sex drive is really low. A bit of erectile dysfunction but I think that comes more from having the pain all the time and anxiety. I don't know if this is possible but my penis seems to have reduced in size when erect. The doctor ask me to try some cialis for the ED which I did for a short while but decided I needed something natural because of the long term problems of using those medications. I have had long periods of stress from a bitter business relationship about 2 years ago. My concern is that every time I go to the urologist all they want to do it give me antibiotics and that doesn't seem to be working. I am concern of the other organ damage caused by taking long term antibiotics. Is there an alternative you recommend? I have been looking at your Anti- virus treatment. I am 30 years old.

    A:

    I would suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOXfollowed by the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. Read some of our free health articles too on male reproductive health. Healing begins with knowledge!

    Q: Thank you so much for doing all that you do. I wish that you were in my everyday life...If I ever come to Cali, I hope to be able to take you up on some of your services. I have given your site out to many people that cross my paths...most recently, a man with diabetes who is going blind. He seemed to be quite thankful for your info...I do hope that he contacts you...and my friend who perhaps has a problem with a parasite(s). But me....okay just waiting for tax refund and then I will hit you up for another full-body detox...and perhaps a parasite kit myself...as it is sad but true..with my current boyfriend careless but kind...I now have a problem with genital herpes...a small breakout every other month...I eat well for the most part...ofcourse it could be better. But the stress is hish...I am working on that. But my question is...would an air purifier do me any good? You see I live in Dundalk, Maryland...near baltimore...near a Steel plant, and a yeast plant, and close to the military practice bombing sites, and other military negative stuff, and the city polluted with car pollution, tons of light pollution, and they spray for mosquitos...then I go to work and I work at a place called ABC Supply...great place right, well the stress is high, and the building we work in is shot...I swear there is mold under the carpets in one of the rooms...the ceiling is constantly leaking and we don't know what from...and the fumes from forklifts and the asphalt from the shingles...the filterfrom the intake gets changed like once a year...but is filled with 'shit' probably in a day or week. So the answer is to get a new job and move...yeah I know...I just don’t know how to do it...or where to go. Since I moved here, I have a problem with my ears...filling up with water or histimine or whatever...usually if I don't drink enough water near my menstrual cycle...I went to a doctor once and basically walked out of the office telling him what to do for his cold...yasee..he was no help...I knew more than him already....these past two years have been bad for allergies. Now, my ears and my throat...my nose too...though I do clean it out with water and that helps. I am not the only one. In the past two years there is a great number of people who say the same thing...they have never had a problem with allergies until these past two years. My grandmother and next door neighbor are two..but many more...well they just started up that steel mill again probably about that time...they sprayed hard core for mosquitos right before my grandmother started having problems...global warming for one...and i dont' know..but two years ago I was involved with a group of people sending out petitions against an LNG liquid natural gas plant that would bring in a ship two times the size of a football field and a huge pipe line to pennsylvania, and a skyscraper of a building to store the gas. Well...we fought against it...but apparently the gas company has more say than our own local government...I don't know...but hear about it every once in a while that they are still trying to get it built. So, an air purifier?? what do you think? Much Love and Health and Thanks!! Peace, RESPONSE: Thank you so very much for your words, Beloved. Much obliged from the heart!

    A:

    In regards to your question: Oh yes! By all means purchase an air purifier or an ozone machine (which will actually be best or better for you). Make sure you detox (FULL BODY DETOX) periodically, consume ACTIVATED CHARCOAL, and take plenty of IODINE PHOSPHATE as sea weed is great for neutralizing the effects of radiation.

    Q: I've come to your website many times in the past few days and I would like to start ordering some products to begin detoxing my body and to rid my system of the herpes simplex virus and any other std that may be lingering within. I was diagnosed with this virus on 12/5, but since then I have been given amoxicillin by the doctor. After doing some research, I bought some Olive Leaf Extract, L-Lysine and Echinacea with goldenseal. I feel a lot better, especially since I began to stop eating certain foods, like cheese, pork, peanuts and chocolate. I've also been maintaining a positive attitude and believing that I will be free of this virus. I am extremely interested in starting a cleansing ritual beginning at the end of the month, but at current, I would just like to begin with a supplement you would recommend to cleanse my blood, my genital and vaginal area. Your recommendations will be deeply appreciated.

    A:

    If I had to recommend one product before your Anti-Viral Kit for you, it would be Dherbs STD-RID formula.

    Q: Hi it's me again. I just read what you said about meat and what I don't understand is if meat was not good for us why in the Bible people eat Lamb. How would you explain back in the Bible times during Abraham and Moses when they use to offer sacrifice and kill a lamb were they cruel and going against God. And those who couldn't afford animals like Lamb would use bird eggs. In the book of Exodus chp. 12: 11,21,27,43,48 and Lev. 23:5 and 12:3, Deut. 16:7and Exodus 34:25 when the death Angel was passing and God told them to kill a Lamb and put the blood on the door post and gave the command for them to roast it. How would you explain that because up until this day the Jews still eat Lamb. Even fish, it was fish that God used to feed the 5000 people. Are you saying I can't eat fish at all. I would like to know some of the things you eat in the place of meat , fish and chicken. I really want to change my eating habit.

    A:

    All meat consumption came AFTER the Fall of Man (Genesis Chapter 6). Man can eat meat while in a degenerate state but to return back to Eden he/she must go back to plant foods. Also, meat today is greatly TAINTED unlike meat 4,000 - 6,000 years ago! It's not the same. Jews are not the healthiest people, by the way! Health conscious people are!

    Q: Recently I was diagnosed with HSV-2 after finding a blister in my genital area. I am driving myself crazy every bump I see I suspect I am transferring this to all parts of my body. I have developed a rash on my arm and although it is not blisters and is about 5-6 small pimple like bumps that itch and I am so afraid that if I did spread this to another part of my body, how easy is it to spread to my family? I noticed that you offer an anti viral herb and although I am skeptical I am sure thinking about trying it. I was on a five-day course of VALTREX and it hasn't seemed to work. Please email me some reassurance about your product and maybe some tips about the spread of herpes.

    A:

    You’re doing a job on yourself. Read the article â€THINK YOURSELF HEALTHY†because you are greatly thinking yourself sick or unhealthy via worry. HSV2 infects the entire body so rashes can spread to many parts of the body, i.e. the back, buttocks, neck, head, arms, hands, etc. I don't deal much in skepticism because it takes too much energy to undo and most people are skeptical in a biased fashion, skeptical about good things or natural things but not skeptical about bad or unhealthy things, which they should be. All I can tell you is to read the article â€HERBAL SKEPTICISM†to make your decision. So, I suggest you read the following articles, which I know, will greatly help you.

    Q: I recently went to the hospital and I thought I had the virus in the hospital the nurses were very negative towards me. I was given bad medication and as a result I had all the symptoms of the virus when I left the hospital and I am still testing negative and I feel like they have given me bad meds to try to kill me. I don't look the same every time I drink something that has acid in it, it makes my skin turn red and now when I go out I feel that everyone with the virus know what the hospital has done to me people just laugh knowing that the hospital nurse gave me a HIV cocktail. What can I do? I have been to the doctor numerous times and it seems like every thing I touch has germs and it’s getting inside of my body. I was treated really unfair. Now in the community where I live also.

    A:

    IF THEY DID SLIP YOU A HIV COCKTAIL, HERE'S WHAT I SUGGEST: PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX AND DRINK DETOX TEA WHILE DETOXING. YOU SHOULD BE FINE AFTER THIS. FOCUS ON POSITIVE THOUGHTS ONLY. NO NEGATIVE THINKING!

During my light research, it was stated by the health and medical industry that nocturnal emissions are normal occurrence within males. I know there's so much more to know about this. Can you can provide some insight as to what it is? Is it really natural? Is it possible for a person to have emissions, who is not sexually active? Can you please help me?

    Q: I was diagnosed with lupus 2 years ago and looking back, I see how I opened myself to contract the dis-ease. I have been symptom and medication free since October 2007, due to a major lifestyle change. STRESSFREE!!! The joints in my hands and feet are still paining me, especially my feet (no cute shoes for me). Although I prefer to be barefoot, (maybe I should move to a warmer climate), I need to get rid of these pains in my joints. I would like to know what could be the message that I'm obviously missing and is manifesting as joint pain?

    A:



    The joints deal with bending and the metaphysical message the joints convey is being too rigid, too stiff or stubborn. Learn to bend in many respects. Let go! Go with the flow. This applies to some area of your life (life issues).

    Q: My question is regarding fibroids. I have been told I have had fibroids about the size of someone 3 months pregnant. I have been told there are two in clusters. They gave me the diameters, but I don't have that information at this time. My OB/GYN has told me he believes it is causing me to be slightly anemic. I have been trying some remedies on my own like more exercise and a change in diet. My primary physician does not recommend surgery she has me taking iron ferrous sulfate supplements twice per day to help with my iron count. It seems to be helping. The only problem I have with taking the iron supplements is that it sometimes causes constipation and I am normally pretty regular. I usually eliminate 2 times per day sometimes 3. My OB/GYN on the other hand keeps pushing for me to having surgery.& amp; nbsp; They had me take BC pills, however I took myself off of them because they made me sick. I took them only for 6 months. I'm 45 and have never taken BC pills ever and I don't want to start now. I've never been pregnant. I flow heavy on my 2nd and 3rd day heavy and after that it is manageable. My cycle has improved however I want to reduce the flow on those days if possible and of course dissolve the fibroid if at all possible. Doctors tell me they won't go away unless removed. I used to be on my cycle for 7 days and 4 of those days were heavy. Now I'm normally on for 4 days and only the 2nd and 3rd day are heavy. I know that as I reach menopause they may shrink in size, however I'm still aways off from that. I eat no red meat however I do eat fish and poultry. I eat a pretty good balance of vegetables and fruits, mostly raw and steamed. I drink lactaid milk. I don't eat much dairy except cheese and eggs occasionally. I do have a weakness, I love potato chips. I know this is not good. I can feel the fibroid get bigger when I eat them. When I stop for a period of time it decreases in size. At least I feel like it does. I'm not a sugar craver, however during the week before my cycle I'll crave sweets. I usually resist. I feel it's my diet that has caused the fibroids as well as every female in my family has had a hysterectomy due to fibroids. I think it is also hereditary as well. Whatever the case I'd like to know what regimen can you put me on that will help me? The goal is to reduce or dissolve the size of the fibroid so it is not affecting my iron level. I'm also starting to see my abdomen get bigger when I've always had a flat stomach. Perhaps this is me just getting older, however I think it's the fibroids. Constant low levels over time can't be good. I hope I have provided you enough information to give me your recommendation. If not please feel free to e-mail me for any additional information you need. I'm looking for a natural cure. Outside of this condition I'm in very good health. No problem with weight, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. I'm pretty athletic and active as well. Please advise. I look forward to your recommendation.

    A:

    I remember just recently e-mailing you on this inquiry. Your diet MUST CHANGE! Consider full fledged RAW FOODS and VEGAN diet during your healing transition. Lactaid milk is HORRIBLE for you. Did you read our â€FIBROID TUMORS†article?????? You need to keep on performing FULL BODY DETOX followed by Fibroid Buster kit and regimen, back to back! Continuously! Detoxing must become a lifestyle for you! For iron, consider Dherbs.Com IRON PHOSPHATE FORMULA and MOON CYCLE FORMULA. Also, consider a telephone consultation because time is greatly limited in writing back in response to inquiries. There is much healing for you, Beloved!

    Q: I am a 29 year old African American female. I would like to tell you my story and get your advice. Before Sept. 28, 2008 I was a healthy fun loving female but after sept. 28th my health has not been the same. I wake up in the morning weak with nausea and headaches. I went to Kaiser and they said I had a virus and I had to let it take its course. I work with kids and it was hard for me to go back to work because 1. I kept getting sick. 2. My boss was mad that I was sick and not able to work. So I went back to Kaiser and then they said I was sick and had a virus with a mix of anxiety(due to my boss going crazy on me). They said I need to rest and stop being anxious, so I can heal.(well the anxiety is gone) Next I started to get sharp pains in my stomach area(which I have had before on and off for the past couple of years but it would only happen like once or twice a year) but I was scared because the pains we're very sharp and happening like two weeks apart. So Kaiser told me to go see a Upper GI Dr. I went to see one and had an endoscopy done and they found a yeast infection in my throat and that also my esophagus was irritated to but my stomach looked fine. So they put me on Prontiox (for the irritated esophagus and Difucan (for the yeast infection). Well as soon as I finished the medication for the yeast infection in my esophagus, I lost my voice and could not talk for 4-5 days and I still have the stomach pains. So the Upper GI dr. told me the sore throat and losing my voice was a side effect to GERD and that is what I may have. So he asked to up the dose of the Prontiox (so now I am taking 80 mg instead of 40 mg a day). But guess what still having stomach pains and my voice still goes in and out and it feels like something is stuck in my throat and now when I eat, I feel food get stuck in my chest like right in the middle of my breast. So what is going on with me...they have done blood work on me from blood count to checking me for STD's (even HIV) and everything came back normal/negative. And they keep saying all my blood work is healthy...So what is going on and what can I take, because I am a natural person and my system is sensitive to a lot of stuff and I don’t like being on these medications. And now the DRs may think I have IBS..Oh boy Help!! And oh yeah I have had very bad cramps when I have my period and take Motrin and I would like to know is there anything I can take that is sensitive to my stomach... HELP

Also, how much per month will these products cost and how many months do the kits last? How do you recommend I buy them? By kit or individual? Thank you for your time!

    A:

    I recommend you perform the FULL BODY DETOX kit followed by the FIBRIOD BUSTER CLEANSE AND REGIME. Perform them back to back. Take a break for about a month and perform both of them again. Six weeks on and six weeks off. While your off of these 2 kits, take individual formulas of IRON PHOSPHATE FORMULA, FIBRIOD BUSTER, and MOON CYCLE FORMULA. In re iron, you are taking POISON! The kind of iron you are taking is poisonous and mixes with sulfur in your body which creates constipation. I suggest Dherbs IRON PHOSPHATE FORMULA which is 100% all-natural with absolutely no adverse side effects! Also, you have to improve your diet. Nothing greatly causes fibroids than DAIRY PRODUCTS! The meat, potato chips, dairy, etc. is filling up your trashbags (tumors). Go VEGAN and RAW FOODS! Start reading some of our free health articles, i.e. â€FIBROID TUMORSâ€, â€WHAT IS RAW FOODSâ€, etc. Dherbs products can greatly help you and you'll see and/or feel the difference (as long as you don't cheat on your diet). There is much help for you!

    Q: Is there an herb that will cure herpes/HPV virus? Please help Do I need to change my diet as well?

    A:

    There is no one single herb that cures HPV or any other viral infection.

    However, the Anti-Viral Kit is a great 20 day cleanse that helps to fight viral infections and build the immune system.
